Infrastructure needs (April 10, 2017)

In Sunday’s Valley Voices it was clearly pointed out the need for “investment” in the east Victor Valley (Apple Valley) waste water infrastructure, noting that “here in the Victor Valley and High Desert our infrastructure has been stretched particularly thin” and … “costs have skyrocketed.”

“We are also more vulnerable than most to floods, fires, drought, and earthquakes that can paralyze entire regions and result in complicated and expensive repairs.” These quotes are from the manager of the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority.

Now, wasn’t it the wastewater funds that the Apple Valley Town Council illegally transferred $7 million to the General Fund? I think it was!

Then it was reported that some of those funds were used to cover losses in operating the golf course. Oh, well, that boondoggle may qualify as authorized as the golf course is really a “drain” on the town finances.

Meanwhile, maintenance and upkeep of wastewater infrastructure will be postponed in the same manner as roads, and parks and recreation.

Business as usual in little old Apple Valley.
